Thistlecrack cut for King George as big clash is on

| 19.12.2016

Coral has cut Thistlecrack to 13-8 (from 5-2) for the King George, after it was confirmed the star chaser would line up against his stablemate Cue Card at Kempton. The latter remains favourite but is eased to 11-8 (from 4-5).

“This is the Christmas present all racing fans wanted, and having been odds-on favourite for the King George following Coneygree’s withdrawal, Cue Card is back out to 11-8, with his stablemate now the 13-8 (from 5-2) second favourite,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
